Acupressure for hair loss

If you are losing hair, prevent hair loss with this simple acupressure technique using points Gallbladder 39 (GB39) and Kidney 3 (KID3)


GB39 is a special point known as the gathering of marrow. When we have strong Kidney, Jing, bone, and sinew it will show in our hair. Our Kidney stores Jing (one of the three treasures) and Jing produces marrow. The

Gallbladder channel moves Qi upward to benefit the eyes, ear, and hair. Jing turns into Blood, and according to TICM, the condition of our hair reflects the condition of our Blood.

KID3 located: In depression midway between the tip of the bony bump on the inner side of the ankle and the attachment of the achilles tendon.

GB39 located: 3-4 finger widths above the external ankle bone, on the anterior border of the fibula.

Rub GB39 and KID3 at the same time with stronger pressure. You can use the index finger on the GB39 point and thumb on KID3 point or use both index fingers with strong pressure. Or Use your gua sha tool over the points GB39 and KID3. I recommend doing this daily in the evenings before bed. Your hair health will thank you for it.
